Bfgoodrich Sidewall Test

One thing we noted with both set of tires was the intense beating the sidewalls were capable of handling. We repeatedly put the sidewalls in positions such as this, with rubber practically pinched against the rim, and there was never a problem. Both tires have the BFG TriGard sidewall, which means there's three plies in the sidewall instead of two plies found in most other truck tires. This makes the sidewalls more puncture-resistant at the sacrifice of a little sidewall flex.
